The Very Hungry Caterpillar comes to life in my very own kitchen!

The bad news: I did not inspect an heirloom tomato closely enough and came home with an inedible disappointment.

The good news: A caterpillar crawled out of the rotten tomato and posed merrily on a peach.

The sad news: Then we banished the caterpillar to the backyard, where it was presumably eaten by one of the 500 lizards that have taken up residence on our property.

The unexpectedly cute news: Baby lizards are adorable (so if they need to eat defenseless caterpillars to survive, I can respect the circle of life).

Please ignore the dirt and grime and just admire the baby lizard.
